Given her core research interest in the philosophy of education, Lani takes an active interest in applying theories of teaching and learning in her own practice. She has received training in ‘Philosophy For Children’ (P4C) by The Philosophy Foundation and SAPERE and in Thinking Moves by Dialogue Works. She has also developed and tested her own innovative teaching methods and trained with the Right Question Institute in their specialised Question Formulation Technique (QFT).
